The luxury line-up of fully traceable eco-friendly re-engineered yarns produced through the Re.Verso textile platform has been expanded to include Baby Camel.

The 100% 'Made in Italy' textile collection is a venture between five Italian firms that collects, sorts and reprocesses pre-consumer wool and cashmere clippings from premium Italian producers, led by Green Line and Nuova Fratelli Boretti for the raw material, A Stelloni Collection By Mapel for fashion textiles, Filpucci for high-end, luxury knitwear yarns, and Filatura C4 for contract and woven yarns.

The process is accredited, transparent and fully traceable at every stage, and is certified to Global Recycling Standard (GRS), ISO 9001 and SA8000.

The materials are converted into fibres before being spun into yarns from which knitted and woven fabrics can be made. The 100% Made in Italy yarns can replace virgin yarns, saving on energy (-76%), water consumption (-89%) and CO2 emissions (-96%), according to a life cycle assessment from Prima Q.

The new Re.Verso Baby Camel yarn is soft and delicate, with a unique touch that preserves all the natural, luxury proprieties of Baby Camel, the companies say.

The products will be on show at the upcoming Première Vision trade fair in Paris from 13-15 September.

Re.Verso wools and cashmere are being used by premium brands such as Filippa K, Eileen Fisher and Stella McCartney, while outdoor clothing brand Patagonia is working with Re.Verso to introduce a recycled cashmere sweater collection collected from factory scraps and re-purposed into clothing.
